Summary
A young man sets out find out exactly what happened to his brain to turn him into a different person. At 21, Chris was a burly, rugby-playing straight man--but then an accident triggered a series of events in his brain and as he recovered a new Chris emerged. Today he still lives in the same Welsh village but is now a slim gay hairdresser interested in fashion and interior decor. This radical transformation has caused family rifts as relatives struggle to accept his new identity--many doubting his story about how it happened. The documentary follows Chris in his search for answers, talking to medical experts and others who have experienced similar personality changing events when they least expected it. Will Chris be re-united with his family? Can he find out what happened inside his head? And, now settled with a boyfriend, can he be sure that he won't "get better" and revert to his old self?
